Meet Our Trainers

Head Trainer – Jessica Markiewicz

Jessica grew up and learned to ride in Massachusetts. Her passion for horses was born and cultivated at a small grassroots eventing farm.  After finishing college, she moved to Maryland to pursue riding and training full-time. Jessica has worked as a trainer, manager, and professional groom along the east coast, from New England to Florida.  She has competed through the Intermediate/CCI2**-L level of eventing, and has a special interest in producing young OTTBs for the amateur eventing market.  She has been fortunate to work closely with great influences such as Stephie Baer, Buck Davidson, Natalia Neneman, and Sharon White. Jessica enjoys bringing students along from the foundation of the sport, and focuses on building a confident, empathetic relationship between horse and rider, whether the goals are competitive or recreational in nature.  Safety, good horsemanship, and enjoyment of the horse are cornerstones of her training philosophy.
